Welcome to the first in a series of photo essays by Ecuador Unplugged. As part of our Voices of Ecuador series we intend to take you behind the scenes of life in Ecuador. In this first installment we take a look at life on a small banana plantation, West Banana, located just outside of Machala in El Oro province. Only 52 hectares in size this is one of the smaller plantations in an area that produces most of the worlds supply of bananas and, of course, the best quality bananas in the world.
